How is your sweater made?
At KIDKA we offer you the opportunity to witness the interesting process of clothing production, and with it a unique insight into an Icelandic company.
KIDKA sweaters, cardigans and accessories are knitted by knitting machines. The process of washing, brushing and steaming the wool gives it a soft and fluffy texture, but at the same time doesn’t lack the important feature of keeping its owner warm all year round.
We invite you to take a look at the production and the machines, watch us work and pose questions.
Everybody is welcome!
